Prince Philip's funeral: a Land Rover and medals

The Duke of Edinburgh, Queen Elizabeth's husband who died on April 9 aged 99, will have a ceremonial funeral at St George's Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle without any public access or public procession, Buckingham Palace said.

A Land Rover, believed to be a modified Defender 130 Gun Bus, will carry the coffin from the State Entrance of Windsor Castle to St. George's Chapel.

The band of the Grenadier Guards, of which The Duke of Edinburgh was colonel for 42 years, will lead the procession.

The coffin will pause for the national minute of silence at 3 p.m. local time (1400GMT), before the ceremonial royal funeral begins.

Nine cushions with medals and decorations conferred on Prince Philip will be positioned around the altar in the chapel.

His Field Marshal's baton and Royal Air Force Wings as well as insignia from Denmark and Greece will be featured.

"The Duke of Edinburgh had, I think 61 decorations and awards from 53 different other countries and there simply just wasn't the space to have them all on display at the funeral," said Lieutenant Colonel Stephen Segrave.

A Greek prince, Philip married Elizabeth in 1947, five years before she ascended to the throne.
